Staying Committed to the Arts

The arts can be among the first parts of society to lose support in a slow economy, according to Michael Wight, president and CEO of Alexandria, VA-based DigiLink. So Wight is doing his part to keep that flame—and passion—burning.

DigiLink will be playing host to Celebrating Art, a new program designed to recognize arts and their creators. An inaugural reception will be held April 8 from 5-8 p.m., with an exhibition at DigiLink’s corporate office.

The oil paintings of Alexandria artist Nancy Ziegler and the works of Chris Noel, Linda Sherman, Robbie Namy and Doug Fuller—members of the Art Directors Club of Metropolitan Washington—will be on display. The artists will showcase pieces on a variety of mediums, including oil on canvas, watercolors, sculptures and post-consumer waste.

There will also be examples of how digital and offset printing technologies integrate art into award-winning printed materials, according to Wight.

“We produce a wide range of creative printed materials, including posters, brochures, catalogs, art cards and other art gifts for local artists” Wight says. “Celebrating art is our way of thanking the artists in Washington for sharing their creative talents and encouraging them to continue expressing their artistic voices.”
